Carlisle says Nowitzki out ‘multiple weeks’
Dirk Nowitzki’s debut in his record 21st season with the Dallas Mavericks won’t be in the opener. Coach
Rick Carlisle said Friday that Nowitzki, 40, will miss “multiple weeks” with a longer-than-expected recovery from left ankle surgery in April. The Mavericks open the season Wednesday in Phoenix.
Justise Winslow agreed to a $39 million, threeyear extension with the Miami Heat. Winslow averaged 7.5 points and 5.3 rebounds on 41 percent shooting over his first three seasons.
